Consortium Spotlight: Taylor Little

 

Meet Taylor Little, Undergraduate Research Fellow

Years at UofL: Finishing up her Junior year

What movie or book should everyone doing social justice work know about? Animal Farm—Reading about how power is so easily manipulated is something everyone needs to think about.

What motivates you to do this work? I already had experience working with kids. I was raised to believe that education is so important. It’s such a cool thing that with Minds in Motion, you can literally throw tape on the ground [and improves educational outcomes]. The fact that you can translate these small physical motions—that they are having a ball doing—into being able to read better […] is super cool.

The Consortium is directed by the Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research and the Muhammad Ali Institute for Peace and Justice, in collaboration with the Brandeis Laboratory for Citizenship, the Commonwealth Institute of Kentucky, and Health Sciences Center Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
